WSTIP NAMES JEFFERSON TRANSIT AS RECIPIENT OF THE SAFETY STARS AWARD

October 2nd, 2015 by lsmedley

Safety Stars

On behalf of the WSTIP (Washington State Transit Insurance Pool) Board of Directors, the staff of WSTIP  would like to formally congratulate Jefferson Transit Authority as the 1st recipient of the Safety Star  program  representing the small member group of WSTIP.

Your employee’s hard work and dedication to safety has paid off! You have earned our praise and accolades,  along  with the brand new WSTIP Safety Stars Award.

What we really wanted was to recognize member transit agencies that maintained impressive and stable  safety  records … basically showcasing the best performing agency. We also wanted to structure the award  to recognize  members in all three WSTIP rating categories: small, medium and large.

So, what does this mean?
It means that your agency has been consistently a good performer in terms of agency auto losses. In fact, I  would say the best performer in your size category.
